Everybody has a cell phone today, but they obviously don't work all the time, especially in rural areas. If you want global phone service where there is no cell service, you have to go with a satellite phone. There are several satellite services out there, most notably Iridium, Inmarsat, and Globalstar. They all work a bit differently, so I go over the advantages and disadvantages of each. I also go over the price of satellite phones, coverage, and more.

I got my satellite phone free with unlimited service. I had to pay for the service at $350.00 a month but the phone was free from the Satellite phone store. My plan is for two years. I live in Puerto Rico which puts me 18 degrees from the Equator. I get great service.
Sue was my salesperson. So I have unlimited talk and text.
My phone is free.
The plan is only $350.00 I'm rounding it off.
I have global calling.
I'm living in Puerto Rico.
My Sat phone is Inmarsat Is at 2 they are based in California.
Great review. I like the Iridium 9575 Push-To-Talk. I'ts cool and rugged. Just what I need. I actually need a just in case phone. Just in case I get caught out in the wilderness and my T-Mobile Service, (which sucks) don't work or I'm out of the country (U.S.A.). Renting's not for me. I like to own things. I want to purchase one, however, when I saw on this video, the charges per minute, from $6.00 a minute to 12 a minute, Jeeeeesus Christ!! Thanks, but No Thanks. I could see a dollar a minute. Maybe even 2 (and that's a big maybe). I wonder if I can buy it out right, and then purchase prepaid minutes? I think that would be best.
Thanks for a very comprehensive review. I am usually off-roading or trekking in quite remote areas and was considering getting a sat phone but I am still not sure whether to choose Iridium or Inmarsat. Coverage is literally relative for both, even if they are industry leaders. Maybe someone who already owns either Iridium or Inmarsat could give me a hint. Thanks again for a great vid.
Very good video. I remember the old briefcase-sized sat phones with fold-out wings for antennas. But, another item idea are those locators gizmos like "Spot" and there's another one. Anyway, these allow you to do some limited texting and also to send an "I'm okay" message to whomever. Probably good if you were hiking in Siberia or something. Primarily, I guess these are used as distress devices. "I've fallen down a cliff and I can't get up!"
The sat phones are neat and if I were traveling to some political hotspot where cellphone service might be deliberately interrupted, it would be a good idea to have one.
Thanks for the video! Very informative!
I'll be taking a road (car) trip to Himalayas to Indian Jammu and Kashmir (state) and few other states as well. I'll need it and I'll be able to afford it, so I'll be definitely buying one. I think it's a great investment in regards to safety.
I use mine for off-road emergencies in the wilderness. Dialing out from a Satellite phone is eazy peazy. Dialing to a Satellite phone from a cell or landline is tricky. You must dial to a Satellite phone as if you were making an international call. If you know how to do that, fine. However all phone companies do not have that ability. Thanks Joe :|
Hmm, I was considering getting one, until...Until I go back to the Philippines in approximately 1.5 years, my girlfriend and I are forced to communicate via cell phone. She uses pocket wifi and must constantly buy loads every three days. Her signal is constantly getting lost. We do much video chatting. From the looks of it, the satellite phone would not be idea. I surmise that we must continue the way we have been. Thanks for the awesome video!
This is an awesome video! Thank you for posting it. I live in Portland, Oregon which is in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This could be very useful (and even life-saving) if we get that 8.0-9.0 earthquake that is predicted. Cell phone service and landlines will likely be unusable in the aftermath. Thanks again for the wonderful information.
Those satellite phones are used by the UN in the Mid-East especially in the desert areas. Back in the 70s my Father used to carry a suitcase that carried a phone and a mini antenna to set up so that he could get a good signal. They were very useful when in dangerous areas also. He had his own set in Baghdad before the first gulf war. Sounds like these phones have come a long way!
I had a feeling it wasn't going to be cheap but damn. The cost of the phone ok I understand even if the phone looks like a mid 90's style but the mins. I was thinking 100-250 mins was going to be at most $150 a month but I was so so so wrong lol. That phone takes the meaning of "when money calls you pick up" to the max.
Hello, i would say the money is no problem for me like if i have to pay double. But i need to ask you, does it works to call to Cuba Unlimited times? I would appreciate if you tell me what other thing i can use to call to Cuba from USA unlimited times. Thank you.
to call another sat phone you need to enter the international dialing code of
a the country where you bought the phone from
b the country of the phone service provider company
c the country you are currently in
d the country of the sat phone call receiver that he or she is currently in
e the country where the call receiver bought his or her phone
f the country of the phone service provider of the call receiver's phone
please help me man i am so confused
